List of Contents
|A gigantic sea snail from the Frost Islands. It hates bright lights, and so remains in the sea during the day. At night, it surfaces where squids and other such potential prey gather. It possesses an organ that projects various patterns of light onto its skin. Its eyeball-like glow and colossal silhouette are the dread of every sailor in the region.|
Monksnail's design is based on the Japanese yokai Umi-Bozu. This yokai is said to appear in the middle of the sea and cause problems to sailors.
Monksnail can be found in the sea in the Frost Islands during nighttime. So whenever you're in the Frost Islands during nighttime, make sure to look towards the open sea to check if there's a big jellyfish-looking creature with two yellow eyes moving about. It should be easier to spot from high ground.
A large echoing roar across the map at night can also signal the presence of the monksnail. Make sure you still check if there is no sound cue!
To see it as quick as possible, fast travel to Sub-camp 2 and look to the sea in the east!
If you don't find Monksnail there, try fast travelling to a camp and head back. Though its appearance is random, it should appear in one specific place only, like all Rare Endemic Life. You can also try waiting for a few minutes until it appears.
Like all Rare Endemic Life, Monksnail should be photographed in game in order to get its entry in the Hunter's Notes. Try using the Greeting in the Action Bar in front of it and see how it reacts!
Players will also need to take a picture of the Monksnail to fulfill the Giant in the Frost Islands? Request in the Sunbreak DLC, so players who have not taken its photo yet can kill two birds with one stone. Completing this rewards the adorable Monksnail Hat!
